Walk/bike midtown: just blocks from lively restaurants, wine bars, brew pubs, art galleries, and coffee houses, your visit includes a comfy double bed in a 2 bedroom 1.5 bath bungalow in the "City of Trees." Set on a lovely tree lined street, the bungalow overlooks the greenbelt and is located in historic Boulevard Park amongst Victorian and craftsman style homes.

The home's living room features large windows with great views of the neighborhood offering a respite from the hustle and bustle. Relax on the sofa, sip a glass of wine, and gaze out on the lush foliage and passerby's.

Your bedroom, at 10' X 11' is the quietest room in the house. It connects to a Jack-n-Jill bathroom where you may shower. The half bath, nearby, is for your personal use. Also available, is a locked shed for your bike.

Within a few blocks you will find Old Soul Coffee house, a yoga studio, and delicious eateries (farm-to-table fare, Thai, Spanish, Mediterranean, Japanese, Mexican, Italian). Live music venues such as Old Ironsides, Harlow's, Torch Club, Fox N Goose,and Marilyn's are also nearby. I'd be happy to share more once I learn what you're seeking during your stay.

If your passion is biking, this location is perfect as the American River bike trail access is just a few blocks away. It's a smooth trail with plenty of squirrels and rabbits; some cranes and turkeys; and the occasional deer, coyote, and rattle snake.

Most likely, after the ride, you'll be ready for a cold beer and a hardy meal. I'll be glad to direct you to the perfect spot to fill the void.

Back at the bungalow you can sit on the porch or patio, meet neighbors, read, or play with house resident/pet Goldie. The kitchen and washer/dryer are available for your use if needed.

My home is in walking distance to the State Capitol, Old Sacramento, farmers markets, Governor's mansion, museums, and jogging parks. The bus stop is nearby and travels to downtown, towards Old Sac, and to Sacramento State University.

Coffee, tea, and Nature's Plus flax-seed cereal on site (non-fat milk). Street parking with parking pass. No need for parking pass after 6:00 p.m. Monday - Saturdays or at all on Sundays.

No television on site. Free street parking.

Guest access

House, your own half-bathroom just off the kitchen & utility room, shared shower attached to the bedroom (Jack-n-Jill bathroom), washer/dryer, & shed to store bike.

Interaction with guests

Whatever is appropriate and time alows. I enjoy communicating with guests and showing them around town when I am available.

Other things to note

Independent & international films at a nearby movie theater. Also nearby, several good night clubs, coffee shops, live music spots, and really good live theaters with professional actors.

Monica is a wonderful host, her home is such a beautiful and welcoming place. The room is amazing, she is so accommodating, there is never an issue sharing the bathroom. Goldie is a sweetheart, the house is in a perfect location (I walked to work at the Capitol every day and to the Midtown Farmers' Market every weekend). The neighborhood is great as well. Perfect for a stay or for a temporary home.

Monica's place is absolutely the best. Beautiful home in great neighborhood. I had a great nights sleep. Even though Monica and I only briefly chatted (both were busy) I still felt very welcome and at home. Definitely staying here next time I'm in Sac.

If you want a great place to stay with an accommodating host Monica is the one! A nice size room, and the bed is a pillow top to die for. The location is near downtown, but away from the hustle and bustle, the house is charming as well. I would stay there again if father time has me show up in Sacramento!!!

Monica's home is very cozy and comfortable. I was able to walk to most places and back & if I chose to request a Lyft it was never more than $10 (usually around $5/6) to get just about anywhere. Monica and her family are more than kind and welcoming. As an introvert I appreciated being given space to relax quietly, but the good conversation was refreshing as well.

Great location. There is a wonderful coffee shop 1 1/2 blocks south that serves breakfast and lunch and McKinley Park is 3/4 of a mile to the east if you like to run or walk. Monica's home is charming and clean, and she is very helpful with places to go and things to do. I would definitely recommend staying there and hope to do so my next time in town.

I'm the fan of Chuck Prophet. Yes, right next to me is the very talented Prophet of the Chuck Prophet & the Mission Express. You will find I can be quite social, but I do value my solitude. I will try to be available as time allows if you like.

-Native of Sacramento
-Sac State graduate
-Employed
-House concert host
-Enjoy walking and taking in the historic architecture & lovely trees

My contributions include: hosting house concerts; volunteering for a Sac State Dreamers scholarship; adopting a rescue dog, and occasionally, community activism.

I enjoy music of various genres; foreign & independent films; the theater; walking my dog; riding the bike on the American River trail; hiking, reading, traveling especially to the beach; and listening to Science Friday and Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

Some of my favorite destinations include: Central Park/Manhattan; Yucatan peninsula, Mexico; Lake Constance on the Bodensee; Waldbad, Anif; Salzburg; Boll, Croatia; Oaxaca, Mexico; the Big Island, Hawaii; Barbados, Tobago, and Marin County. There are still so many places I'd like to venture to, such as: Vietnam, Thailand, Norway, Ireland, Bahamas, Spain, Berlin, Switzerland, and of course absorb more of California and embark on several road trips across the U.S. We'll see how it goes.

When hosting, I share information with guests about my home town and the surrounding areas. You can be sure of having a comfortable stay in a cozy home with clean quarters. I offer nothing less than what I enjoy when traveling.
